have a stylist on 'Mary Queen Of Shops'? I like her and want her to be able to dress herself. I can. And nobody laughs so it can be that hard.

Bet Gok's got one as well.

If Nicky H-J has one they should be sacked.

Gok needs to step way from the deep v-neck. Some bloke on 'Location..' kept wearing one this week.

I like her hair.

Fimbo Fri 18-Jul-08 14:03:43

She's the spit of my hairdresser.

Perhaps she is so busy that she doesn't have time to go shopping herself so she gets someone else to do it for her!

I like what she wears
It's risky but stylish
I quite like it when people dress in something a bit ugly and odd but generally pull it off
N H-J however is the definition of unstylishness imo

She did say the other week that she hates shopping for clothes! hmm

I think she's v. stylish and her partner is Grazia's Fashion Features Editor so wouold imagine they are stylish together.

Wot Paula Reed?

I love Mary's hair - have been inspired to have mine cut this week but sadly dont look at all like her..

Sunshinemummy Fri 18-Jul-08 16:35:40

No she's called Melanie Rickey - maybe I've got her job title wrong but she's definitely a Grazia fashion person.

I told my mum Mary liked the ladies, but she said she was divorced with DCs. So does she like ladies now?

I like everything about her. Just everything. She should have a stylist, she deserves one.

ahundredtimes Fri 18-Jul-08 17:03:16

I'd like to be her actually. I'd like to say 'this is a business, what's your fashion story?' a lot. And wear those necklaces and white shirts with good cuffs.

nailpolish Fri 18-Jul-08 17:05:59

well i think Mary knows about fashion - she knows whats in fashion and what will sell - its her job - does NOT mean she likes these fashionable clothes - she prefers to wears whats off the market and M&Co

i know all about my job doesnt mean i ever apply it in RL grin

ahundredtimes Fri 18-Jul-08 17:07:37

No, no. She knows what is 'on trend'.

Oh good. I have a teeny crush on her. Maybe I'm in with a chance.

God she's great.

I want to go to that shop in Paris she took that couple to. The one with the horrid man and the woman who went to get her hair done, and then surely, surely, ditched him months later.
